Frances Payne Exhibition
- now to 9th October
2014 will be the ninth annual exhibition for Frances at Aberglasney. The gardens and mansion are a perfect setting for her watercolours of plants and insects. Frances is fortunate to live in the beautiful countryside of a farm in rural west Carmarthenshire. From tiny wild violas which grow in the clover meadows to the insects and galls found on an ancient oak tree, there is a never-ending source of subject matter throughout the year.
